27 Easiest Woodworking Projects for Beginners

27 Easiest Woodworking Projects for Beginners

When I first started woodworking, I had a sawzall, a palm sander, a miter saw (if I’m feeling fancy) and some random hand-tools someone gave me as a house-warming present. To pay homage to those character building years, I have compiled a list of 27 of the easiest woodworking projects for beginners.

We have compiled a list of 27 of the easiest woodworking projects for beginners.

1. Simple Pallet Shelf

The best projects are those that can be completed quickly, but still look incredible and have people asking “where did you buy that?!”

2. Makers Kit Wood Craft

3. Wooden Sofa Sleeve Cup Holder

This is one of those, “why didn’t I think of that”, kind of projects. Literally, if you can put three pieces of wood together and cut a hole in it, you can make this wooden sofa sleeve cup holder.

4. Rustic Candle Holder

From Adina Johnson at Simple Country Life, we bring you an awesome rustic candle holder that brings a little southern charm into any home.

5. Address Number Wall Planter

Recently, I’ve been slightly obsessed with some of the DIY projects from Shanty2Chic. This address number wall planter is simply blooming with style, and is sure to add a boost to your curb appeal.

6. Wooden iPad Dock

I am always amazed by the things people come up with using one simple piece of wood. David Bakker is one of those people who has earned my respect.

7. Tiny Wooden USB Drive

Generally, the smaller the piece, the more difficult it is to work with. The USB drive project from Offseid, however, is rather simple.

8. Floating Wine Bottle Holder

I’ll admit I love magic. David Blaine is my favorite for sure. However, optical illusions have always vexed me. Seriously, they make me feel so dumb, and I hate feeling dumb (I assume I am not alone).

9. Simple Boxes

Photozz provides us with the basics. Simple boxes are the perfect place to start for the woodworking beginner.

10. Wooden Arrow Wall Art

Ashley at Cherished Bliss gives us a lesson in minimalism artwork.

11. Easy Wooden Bird House

Any Boy Scouts out there? If not, I’d say a great majority of us have built a bird house. I can’t think of a better project to share with the kids.

12. Wood Plank Wine Rack

Have an extra plank of wood lying around? A wood plank wine rack from Camille Styles is the perfect solution.

13. Simple X Table

Want to accomplish your summer DIY project over the weekend? The “X” table from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs is the perfect place to start.

14. Wooden Door Mat

I’ve seen plenty of doormats with funny sayings and clever ways of expressing “welcome”.

15. DIY Lazy Susan

I wonder who this “Susan” lady is, and how she got the reputation for being so lazy. The truth is, many inventions stem from our constant ambition to make things easier.

16. Baseball Coat Rack

Perfect for the kids room, these baseball coat racks are not only easy, but creative.

17. Unique Hanging Basket Frame

I just couldn’t help it. I had to use another Shanty2Chic project.

18. DIY Jelly Bean Dispenser

OutdoorGirl16196 from “Instructables” brings back a classic in this DIY wooden candy dispenser. She uses jelly beans, but honestly, any candy that is similarly sized will work (I’d use Skittles, or Reese’s Pieces).

19. Scrap Wood Candle Holder

Brought to us by Boardersheep, this scrap wood candle holder is so simple I’m not sure it doesn’t make itself.

20. Wooden Bookends

The best, and some of the coolest, projects are those that don’t require accurate measurements and precise techniques. The rustic bookends from ehow fit the bill.

21. Live Edge DIY Cutting Board Kit
Everything you need to make a live edge cutting board. Pick up this kit today.

22. DIY Hanging Planter

23. Metal Pipe Table

I’ve been noticing the use of iron pipes and connections lately for woodworking and furniture projects.

24. Office Supply Tray

Here we have a project that takes some patience. You will have to make plenty of cuts, and of course, measure twice before each of them. The end result will certainly be worth it.

25. DIY Bottle Vase

Hopefully you are a visual kind of learner… This post comes from our Bavarian friends at Nur Noch (something German google translate couldn’t clarify), and all of the instructions are in German.

26. Side Table For Under

27. Simple Napkin Holder

28. Live Edge Walnut Tea Light Holder

    1:13 DIY Jelly Bean Dispenser – Just a picture of jelly beans.. Thanks! I guess it leaves a lot up to the imagination.

  11. SAM zegarelli on January 23, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    *TopFineWoodworking. Com* is a fantastic website about wood working. I took various classes as well as finished a one year diploma in carpentry at a local tech college; this is much better than any book I worked out of during those lessons. It explains everything regarding woodworking as well as complements it with helpful photos.?

    This is really good! a lot of the work is made so simple. And reminds me, just in case you didn’t know about it, Woody Hyezmar is giving away his woodworking book! Maybe try go’ogling him.

    Thank you

    This is certainly the best woodworking book I have ever read, “Bαzοmο Tdy Plαn” (Google it). The book consists of eye-catching pictures and drawings and reader-friendly text. This is a “must have” woodworking book simply because everything you should learn about wood working is found here and it truly guides you throughout the topic well. .

  26. GILBERT GUTIERREZ on January 23, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    As an amateur with woodworker, I typically feel overpowered with the entire arrangement. Be that as it may, this arrangements drove me through with much clarity and effortlessness [Link Here== *TopFineWoodworking. Com* . I now work like a genius. That is great!?

    This is an incredible worth for money [Link Here== *TopFineWoodworking. Com* ]. I have been looking for something like this for quite a while now. I’m happy there are opportunities like this out there. This woodwork plan made a clear presentation with regards to building sheds. Much thanks to you.?
